For every Cinderella…

by Dan Bilicki In: Basketball

For every feel-good, cinderella story that the NCAA tournament can give you, there’s always the heartache that this princess just destroyed your bracket most likely. Sure it’s really nice that Davidson bounced Georgetown and San Diego faced off against Siena in a battle between a 12- and 13-seed, but who had those two teams in their bracket? One upset maybe, surely not two.

Davidson especially hurt my pool chances, causing me to put several crosses through Georgetown’s all the way to the Final Four. Losing the first of your four is always the hardest and it’s exponentially tougher the earlier that it happens. I’m not sure if I’ve ever lost one of my regional champs in the first weekend of play.

Let’s hope, for the sake of my bracket, that UCLA, Tennessee and Texas can withstand the pressure and earn me some cashola.
